Woman brutally attacked for trying to stop thugs from STEALING her pug puppies
A MOTHER was battered in a brutal robbery in her own home – for her three pug puppies.
She was yesterday getting medical attention after being attacked in her neat rural home in the Welsh countryside.
Police also attended at her country home to update her on their hunt for the dog-nappers.
Her son Justin, 35, said: “They punched her several times and stole three of her babies.
“Mum tried to put up a fight but lost to two grown men, the cowards left her in a right mess. I hope they catch these cowards.”
Her daughter-in-law, Kayleigh Whiteman, posted an appeal on Facebook to other dog-lovers in a bid to hunt down the attackers.
“They scooped up all the pups and left causing a fight with Liz and beating her up. I don’t want this happening to anyone else. Can you warn others out there that these people are about.
“They will look for ads on pet websites such as pets4homes, contact you and come visit your home and steal the dogs.”
Liz was treated in hospital for wounds to her face from the thug’s punch.
A Gwent Police spokesman said: “A woman sustained minor injuries and is now recovering at home after being treated at hospital.”
“They were driving a dark coloured car, possibly a Volkswagen Golf.”
